Parenting Tips

Bringing up kids is probably one of the most rewarding experiences in life, but arguably one of the most challenging. Since every child and every parent is unique, there are no formulaic ways of achieving success. However, there are some tips that parents could bear in mind to make life simpler. We at Little Millennium, have tried to put together a set of tips that could help you develop a parenting style that could go a long way in creating the right foundation for your precious child.

Basic Nutritional Requirements of Preschoolers

  • oddlers may have difficulty tolerating excessive fiber in their diet. Suitable fiber includes whole wheat breakfast cereals, and whole meal bread. Avoid food with a large content of seeds, nuts and grains.

  • Fruit and vegetables are good sources of vitamins and minerals. Fruits are best had whole rather than in the form of juice.

  • Honey and sugar should only be included in a toddler’s diet in small amounts. Replace biscuits, cakes, chocolate and other sweets with snacks such as fruit and whole meal bread cut into interesting shapes.

  • As far as possible, avoid food with excessive refined or processed food. Go easy on maida, processed cheese, etc.

Nutrition experts believe that the calories in drinks are not recognized by the body in the same way like calories from solid food .This makes it easy to over-drink calories. So the precaution is…

  • Try to limit juice to 4 to 6 ounces for your preschoolers. Dilute full strength juice if your preschooler drinks juice more than once a day so the total of full strength juice is 4 to 6 ounces.

  • Make sure to serve 100% fruit juice. No added sugar, syrup or any other synthetic ingredients.

  • Many pre packaged juice boxes & pouches contain more than 6 ounces of juice. Try serving small portion from a family size bottle of juice.

  • In a restaurant stick to your rules about no aerated drinks. Aerated drinks have no nutritional value but have several negative effects on children.

Choosing the Right Cereals for the Preschoolers

Fiber requirement

  • Look for whole-grain ingredients. (Whole – wheat flour, whole oat, whole oat flour, brown rice).

  • Look for sources of sugar. Look out for multiple sources of sugar in the list. Together they might become the primary ingredient. (Sugar, brown sugar, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, juice concentrate, cane sugar, beet sugar, honey, rice syrup).

  • A preschooler needs 19-25 grams fiber per day. Since cereal grains are important source of fiber choose whole grain cereals as they have more fiber. Do try to mix millets like bajra, jowar, etc in the wheat flour for making rotis.

Tips for Heealthy Eating

Let your preschooler eat what you eat.

  • Healthy eating on-the-go is possible. Offer a variety of foods every day.

  • Encourage healthy eating for everyone in the family.

  • Let your child decide if they are full or hungry.

  • Offer healthy snacks between meals.

  • Encourage children to help prepare meals.

  • Encourage water rather than sweet drinks.

  • Enjoy family mealtimes and activities together.

  • Plan meals and snacks and reduce mindless eating. (No eating in front of TV).

  • Be flexible. Some children in this age group are still fussy, so offer a wide variety of foods and regular meals and snacks, and allow the child to eat according to his/her appetite without force or arguments.

  • Be the change you are trying to create. Don’t be a habitual offender of the very rules you are trying to enforce on your child.
